Still salmon, open days, and cheap seats

 

There is a natural arc of the fishing in every season, not just the run timing, but the excitement level and the crowds.

Early on, even before the fish really show up, everyone is out, excited, and can’t wait for the fish.

After its been going for a while things settle into a rhythm, and then, when the end is in sight the river gets quiet, even if the fish are still coming well.

There were a couple of weeks there where anything that landed near that tree got gobbled up

Thats where we are now.

Friday, with the water going up through the roof, we pulled over and grabbed the spey rod and managed to hook four chrome salmon before whole trees started drifting by.

We will be back at it tomorrow, there are plenty of chrome coho and still fresh kings rolling in, we still have at least a couple of weeks of good salmon fishing to go.

John got this good fish during the low water. Sight fishing, with some good dry fly action (for some)

As the fishing tapers off hatchery steelhead should start to fill in the gaps.  Sometime in mid November salmon slows and steelhead starts, but no one knows what day that will be.

I will offer some discount days, we will find some fish, its a good time to sharpen up your spey fishing skills or just get a day on the river in.

First up, November 12 and 13th, $100.00 discount plus “lodging” for $40.00.
